On October 13, 2013, at 2:30 pm, Steinbach RCMP was dispatched to the scene of a collision involving an all-terrain vehicle on a trail near the intersection of Road 43E and 47N in the RM of Ste. Anne.
Initial investigation shows that three males were riding their ATVs when one of the riders, a 33-year-old male from Winnipeg, was unable to negotiate a corner, flipping his vehicle into the ditch. Emergency services arrived on scene and transported the male to Ste. Anne Hospital. He was then taken to a Winnipeg hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries on the morning of October 15, 2013.
A RCMP traffic analyst attended the scene. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in this collision. The rider was wearing a helmet.
No further information is available at this time. RCMP continue to investigate.
